Re: Question re time in end stage

I hope your mother is better with her medication being reviewed. I also think that being a close parent or a caregiver is really exhausting. I start work again on Monday but will take a leave at Carnival, that will let them time to find someone for the job. I'm soooooo exhausted and I also feel guil...

I took 2 weeks this January as being so exhausted; yesterday my hus...

Re: Concerned husband

My husvand tolerated folfirinox relatively well. Pain, upset stomach and being tired is part of the desease. She may feel better after a few rounds of chemo. Pancreatic cancer has ups and downs. Hope she will tolerate the chemo.
Ask for stronger painmedication. People shouldn't experience pain.

Re: Thanks for sharing your experiences . . .

Oh Mo, so sorry. Not for the passing, we know it's going to happen, but for all you both had to go through.
I'm quite surprised about the lung mets and why it wasn't mention before. hope you have friends around you to help for whatever you need.
Lots of hugs

I hope all this will be over very soon for Peter, and for you in a way. You've done all what's possible. It's so hard!

I feel so sorry for both of you. I know so well what you're going through..... have tried biscuits, crisps, chocolate, Belgian beer, but nothing really helps, you just have to go through all this....

Re: Thanks for sharing your experiences . . .

Hello Mo! Hope you and Pete are as comfortable as possible, and Boris too. I really feel connected when I read your stories. I'm also the only caregiver as his only son died of cancer early this year and his daughter in law and grandson broke up all contact ( families are so nice!). I just don't kno...

Re: Speed of diagnosis is scary!

Very sorry for you, don't really have the words. My husband was diagnosed sept 2014 stage 4. We just came back from the restaurant, so there is hope. Of course PC is hard, and treatments too, but just don't get focused on statistics.
Hugs from Belgium

Re: Stephen's Story

Well, his scan and MRI in July showed " paradoxal" results, some mets stable, even decreased, one increased, tumour on pancreas stable but he is increasingly tired.
